There is a $25 fee for State and National dues for FCCLA. Students are entered into the national register when they pay. Students who pay their dues before October 11th get to go to Wahooz for free with students from the other CTSO's (Career and Technical Student Organizations like FFA, BPA, HOSA, TSA and SKILLS) on October 22nd. We fundraise for costs associated with competitions. We generally are able to cover the costs of district and state competitions. If students make it to the national competition level, parents have to pay for the flights and any additional charges that are not covered by the fundraising activities. There is an FCCLA district meeting at Scentsy Commons (Meridian, ID) on October 17th.
